At any other time, fine, Billy Walters could deal with the fact that federal authorities are reportedly “examining a series of well-timed trades” made by him and golfer Phil Mickelson, that Carl Icahn may or may not have mentioned in passing to the the men. But not now. Not when he’s gearing up for the fourth annual “World’s Sexiest Golf Tournament,” which is less than three months away and needs his undivided attention.

Now in its fourth year, the tournament is officially known as the Las Vegas ParAm and will be hosted at Bali Hai Golf Club. But the tournament’s calling card isn’t the well-manicured greens at the club, but the “extremely attractive” caddies, called ParMates, who accompany groups of golfers around the course. The female ParMates are professional models, “who are known for enhancing a round of golf by being fun and sexy,’’ according the release from Mr. Walters’s company. The ParMates, who have been featured in an article in Golf Digest and video segment on the Golf Channel, have their own webpage and Twitter feed. The site for the ParMates looks more like a upscale dating service than one for caddy bookings. The site includes a gallery of photos for more than three dozen women, highlighting their heights, measurements and “guilty pleasures.” There is even a ParMate of the Month section on the website. But golfers visiting Las Vegas don’t need to participate in the ParAm tournament to spend some time on the links with one of Mr. Walters’s ParMates. The website says that golfers can reserve caddie time with ParMates year round with 72 hours’ notice.

The ParMates have yet to tweet their support for Walters during this difficult time but presumably something is forthcoming.

    When I was in high school, the women's golf team seemed more to want to be sexy for their own team. But reading the description above, it sounds like they aren't limiting the tournament to men so maybe it works.

    They could have just kept calling it a ProAm because you know everyone of those girls is a 'pro.'

    Gez Billy….I'd sure like to putt on some of those well-manicured greens. Got a question though….has the fairway zoysia been given the Brazilian cut?

    Also, SMU Secure won't be joining us for the tourney this year….he's content putting from the fringes this year.

    Great. The Feds can hit him up for a new charge in addition to insider trading.

    Don't big tits get in the way of a good golf swing?

    Isn't flying caddies from out of state specially illegal?

    Rumour has it that Tiger Woods has volunteered to make an appearance….

    I've banged women all over the world

    I'm calling foul. Most of the ParMates clothing do not appear to comply with basic golf etiquette.

    I bet Pfizer is a sponsor of this event.

    You don't pay them to keep score, you pay them to erase.

    From Ashlyn – ParMate of the Month "If you were to ask what are some of my favorite holes I would definitely have to reply maybe sometime I will get the opportunity to show you some of my favorite holes"

    I'd take a few swings in the rough

    Ask Tiger if "the ladies" got in the way of my swing when I clobbered his ass and his car with my gap wedge.
